Michael "Dyne" Mieth

"The first canvas we used was an old fabric that looked like it was gnawed on by rats."

The alternative way for me to academic art was urban art and so developed diferent styles and techniques all by myself to my motivation und love to art. As well he was known abroad, when he presented his coffee artwork for the first time at an exhibition of international artists in the museum of the Birla Academy of Art and Culture in Calcutta, India.

He is a painter, sculptor and multimedia artist living in Berlin, whose art is exhibited internationally and always attracts attention due to his visionary motives. Most recently his picture “Cara del Universo” was exhibited at the Gallery Weekend in the curated art space Hotel Mond Fine Arts Berlin. In addition to renowned international artists such as Banksy, D * Face, Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat, he was the only German artist part of the group exhibition.

Michael Dyne Mieth Reinterpretation, Vis-à-vis by Pablo Picassos original GUERNICA Gouache, in the original dimensions of 3.50 x 7.77 m, was exhibited at the beginning of this year in the Museum of the Imperial Palace in Innsbruck.

For his monumental work G18, the Berlin artist drove across the screen in a Lincoln Continental. Kennedy was in such a car when he was murdered. He was a symbolic figure to most people. He was on the one hand for freedom and at the same time he was responsible for the US entry into the Vietnam War. With his interpretation of Picasso’s Guernica, the artist wants to express how close war and peace can be together. In addition, the tire marks for the tracks of devastation. These are the vestiges of the global military machinery that carries chaos and destruction into the cities and people’s lives. With the car over the screen – how can one understand this artistic expression in connection with GUERNICA? The delicate line of war and peace, good and evil, peacekeeper and terrorist, is as timely and timeless as the traces of Dyne Mieth and Picasso’s artistic work. The rotating loop of heroism and tyranny is a recurrent and shifting process that leaves its deep impressions in the story and we should ask ourselves in which system we are and what unreflectivity can do, what traces and impressions we leave behind.
